1. Nap Attack!
Ah, who doesn’t like the sweet symphony of snores? Who knew that having some Z’s is the ultimate thing your mind and your body need? Who knew that sleeping can give a break to your never-ending to-do list? Well, everyone does, but sometimes we find the tasks too important to sleep them off. But let us remind you; life will go on but the time you are wasting stressing about work, won’t come back. So, grab your coziest blanket and set the alarm because sometimes giving your brain some rest gets you through the day.
Hug a Tree (Or at Least Take It for Coffee)
Did you know that nature is the most qualified therapist? Do you remember that big old oak tree in the park that you used to pretend was your secret clubhouse when you were a kid? Go visit that tree, it might be still waiting for you to come back and tell it all the little things that are worrying you. Leisurely stroll in your neighborhood and admire the beauty of nature. Of if you live in a busy city, admire the beauty of your neighbors! If you don’t care about people’s eyes, give that tree a hug. Even if people stare, just remember you are giving a hug to your chlorophyll-clad buddy.
Spend Some Time with Your Inner Piccaso
Another free therapist is art. We will tell you a secret: Art is a shortcut to mindfulness. But don’t beat yourself up for not being Leonardo da Vinci. Who knows, maybe he too liked to doodle cute mugs before he became an artist. Grab your pen, pencil, or that chalk, whatever, and put that thing you have in your mind on the paper. Your imagination will never have a safer place than paper. Who knows maybe you have the capacity to create the next Monalisa? Or maybe you can find a way to turn boring vegetables into fun drawing figures? Either way, try it. Art will never disappoint you.
Adult-Ish Coloring Books
Do you remember those coloring books from your childhood? Do you know that they are available as adult versions now? Even though they are adult-ish coloring books, they don’t mean to make you the next Picasso. There you will find wild patterns, cool designs, and maybe a box of crayons for the throwback party of your inner child. So, channel your inner artist and splash some colors on those pages. Take your mind on a mini vacation.
Phone a Friend (No, Not Ghostbusters)
Even though you can text a friend, a good fashion conversation has some healing power. Pick up your phone, dial your friend, and talk your heart out. Laugh about the old playful crimes you did in your childhood, annoying your neighbor, or whatever that connects your souls. Talking to an old friend can boost your mood faster than you can say “Taco Tuesday.”
Taking care of your mind is way more important than binge-watching Money Heist (with fewer regrets though). Give these easy and simple ways to boost your mental health a shot and we guarantee you that they will never disappoint you. Go out with your friend and let the good vibes roll, because life is too short to worry about that pile of laundry you are thinking of doing since Saturday.
On a light note, we all are trying to figure out this wild ride that we call life. Even though there are so many rules in life, no rulebook says you can’t have a little fun along the way. Do some dance with a red wine glass in your hand, hug a tree, write a silly poem to your crush (don’t show her if it’s that silly, though), paint the next Monalisa, phone your gossip partner, and do whatever makes you happy. At the end of the day, you may feel a little guilty for that pile of clothes lying on the floor, but your mental health will thank you. And if everything fails, adopt a cat. They will surely know how to make your life fun.
Most importantly, don’t forget to chill and come back for more mental health tips. Until next time.
